NVIDA Flexes ARM Support in CUDA 5.5 Release Candidate
CUDA 5.5 is the first version of the parallel computing platform and programming language to play nice with ARM, meaning it natively supports GPU-accelerated computing on systems built around ARM chips. It will also make it easier and faster for developers to port applications over.
Other than ARM support, CUDA 5.5 brings a handful of other upgrades to the table, including enhanced
- Hyper-Q support for multiple MPI processors via the new Multi-Process Service (MPS) on Linux systems
- MPI Workload Prioritization enabled by CUDA stream prioritization
- Multi-process MPI debugging & profiling
- Single GPU debugging for Linux
- Static CUDA runtime library
- RPM/DEB packaging & new NVIDIA repo
